Skincare 101

by Simon Matta on June 02, 2018

We believe in using only the finest natural ingredients the planet has to offer because what you put on your skin goes into your body. That is why we strictly avoid ingredients such as parabens, mineral oil, silicones, and sulfates. We select each ingredient for its purity and holistic value in supporting optimal skin health; our signature ingredient, MSM, is a natural form of sulfur that inhibits inflammation, reduces redness, and increases skin firmness. Each Soignée product is made 100% in the USA by an FDA approved laboratory, and undergoes stability testing, chemical analysis, micro-testing, and a rigorous quality assurance inspection to ensure that it is up to our standards.

The Soignée Skincare Regimen:

Step 1: Cleanse
For optimal skin health, you should wash your face both morning and night. At night, skin goes through a restorative process, expelling toxins and minerals that need to be thoroughly washed away in the morning. Throughout the course of the day, the complexion is exposed to pollutants and dirt that can clog pores and cause inflammation if not removed from the skin with a gentle cleanser.
For all skin types: Soignée Facial Wash
Step 2: Tone
Add extra hydration and balance your skin’s pH with a hydrating mist like our Rose Water Mist. Spritz it directly onto the face or apply a small amount onto a cotton pad and swipe it across the skin. Follow with moisturizer when skin is still slightly damp. Our Rose Water Mist can also be applied to sunburned skin or spritzed on throughout the day to refresh the complexion and add dewiness.
For all skin types: Soignée Rose Water Mist
Step 3: Moisturize
Keeping skin hydrated is the most important step to maintaining healthy skin. Skin needs moisture to regenerate; dehydrated skin is prone to premature aging and damage. Your skin’s unique moisture needs depend greatly on your skin type and age. Oily and youthful skin types generally require less hydration than mature and dry skin types. Additionally, because men commonly have thicker, oilier skin, they require a more lightweight moisturizer than women. Apply your moisturizer onto slightly damp skin, and be sure to cover the neck and décolletage along with the face, as this skin is especially thin and prone to dehydration.
For oily, combination, or youthful skin types: Soignée Facial Crème
For dry and mature skin types: Soignée Moisture Maximizer
Step 4: Anti-age
As we age, our skin cell turnover and natural oil production slows, leading to fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness. Soignée anti-aging creams are designed to restore skin’s youthful glow and help promote healthy cell turnover. Anti-aging creams should always be applied to hydrated skin; they are not intended as a replacement for moisturizer and are most efficacious when applied on top of moisturizer. Use a gentle patting motion to work a small amount of either our Anti-Wrinkle Cream or 40-Plus Anti-Wrinkle Cream into the skin. Our Anti-Wrinkle Cream is intended for those under 40 wishing to maintain their youthful glow and natural skin health. Our 40-Plus Anti-Wrinkle Cream is infused with plant stem cells, CoQ10, and resveratrol to help restore skin over-40 and address its specific nourishment needs. And remember: pat a little bit of your anti-aging cream onto your neck, décolletage, and the backs of hands as these areas as particularly vulnerable to premature aging.
